Constantia Wine Route

Few wine regions in the world engage wine lovers more than The Constantia Wine Route close to Cape Town, steeped in history surpassing three centuries, but primarily for its magnificent location and world-class wines. The green-blue quilt draped over its shores at the foot of Table Mountain is an incredible sight to anyone flying into Cape Town for the first time. Wine lovers who meander into the heart of this valley for wine tasting are astounded by the beauty – a sight that is as spectacular as the Napa Valley in California any day – quite simply world-class and yet quite unique with its very own character. The Constantia Wine Route creates a foundation for stately yet delicious red and signature white wines as it takes advantage of north and north-east facing slopes which is where the vines thrive soak up later sun in the day although the area is underpinned with a cool climate. In essence, this terroir lends itself to a perfect climate, perfect soils and therefore perfect grapes.
